Museum of Modern Art Frankfurt am Main

The Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt am Main, known as MMK for short, is one of the world's most important museums for contemporary art, having built up a solid global reputation despite still being relatively new on the museum scene.

Since opening in 1991, the museum on Braubachstrasse has set a trend with its post-modern architecture. It has become an important hub and integral part of Frankfurt's cultural and social scene. Featuring major work phases by national and international artists, the museum is a central institution of contemporary art.

The museum's collection is made up of paintings, sculptures, drawings, video installations and photos. Canonical works by Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, Miriam Cahn, Hanne Darboven, Walter De Maria, Donald Judd, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol make the collection at the museum an important point of reference for research into art history. And the collection continued to grow even further when the city made purchases from the Ströher Collection. The acquisition of works from gallery owner Rolf Ricke's collection added significant representations of conceptual art and American (Post-)Minimalism to the museum's stocks too. Opening times: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday: 10 am–6 pm, Wednesday: 10 am–8 pm
